Top choice finnish in Hämeenlinna

This fairytale-style ‘gingerbread house’ was built in 1907 for merchant August Skogster, whose department store was next door, and it is now home to the town's best restaurant. The interior still has a warm, domestic feel. Food includes Finnish classics, a few vegetarian choices and burgers, all made using fresh local produce. The cosy pub downstairs is open between Wednesday and Saturday.
